Surnames: SNOW and SMITH
Submitted by: Marjorie   --   Email address: mpsquires@att.net
Date: 10 Dec 2003

Query: John P. SNOW and Susannah R. Smith of Greene County, GA had six
children. Two of the children are reported to have been born in CLARKE
County, GA. The youngest child is reported to have been born in WALTON
County, GA. There is no information on where the first three children
were born. The BIRTH section of your WALTON COUNTY site shows a J. W.
SNOW with a birth year of 1823/1824 which would be correct for the
oldest child. My question is - "Where did these births come from? Is
there documentation for them. If someone submitted each of these entries
is there a way to determine who submitted the one for J. W. SNOW?"

Surnames: WHITEHEAD,ADAMS
Submitter: Jane K. (mnsb64@bluemoo.net)
Date: 05 Dec 2001

Am at a brickwall on greatgrandparents, Joseph Benjamin Whitehead and Ola Adams. Have been searching in Dodge County for about a year and discovered some notes I jotted down 30 years ago that states they were from Winder, Ga. I live near Canada and am doing all my research on the internet. Joseph and Ola were married about 1902-3, I have a copy of their wedding photo, and they look to be in their early 20's, so I am guessing their births in the late 1870-early "80's. I believe Joseph was a Junior, and it is either him or his father that the Joseph B.Whitehead Boy's Club in the Lakewood section of Atlanta is named in honor of. There seems to be family lore that one of them has a formal portrait in Crawford Long Hospital. Has anyone acess to the early Walton County marriage records, or census reports for 1880 that might list them in their family homes? I would be most grateful for any assistance. One last thing, in the mid 1970's I was contacted by a woman who was doing! a genealogical report for her family and mine was an extention, or "branch" leading off a common ancestor. She wanted to publish the report and was inquiring the interest in the family to purchase copies, as she had to commit to a set number to have it printed and bound. I never heard anymore from her, but would me most interested if the following information would ring a bell in anyone's memory. She was researching my Whitehead/Adams line, and I got the impression she was of the Adams side. I do remember her saying we had an ancestor, Hartwell Jackson, that the family descended from. She was a lovely lady, as most genealogists are, and quite willing to share her findings. If anyone has family descending from Hartwell Jackson, I am sure the Adams family will be in it also, as she said the family was quite old in the reigon. Again many thanks, Jane K.
